Good morning to all of the Sunday Saloners.
I have a bit of a dilemma, which I hope that one of you, with your vast years of reading experiences combined, might be able to help me with. My husband has recently purchased a new car, which will allow us to travel more around the country to visit relatives. Now as much as I look forward to seeing members of my family on a more regular basis, I don't look forward to the endless hours stuck in the car commenting on how every motorway looks the same. My children do not need my attention in the car, as they have DVDs to watch and are more than happy to be provided with an endless supply of edible goodies, usually banned on normal school day. So I would like to be able to spend those hours reading, but unfortunately I suffer with terrible car sickness. Do any of you have any tried and tested methods for combating car sickness?
Back to reading matters. This week I have successfully finished two books and I am whizzing through a third.
I finished The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing by M.T Anderson and The Evil Seed by Joanne Harris, which have both been reviewed on my blog.
The third book I am reading is A Hat Full of Sky by Terry Pratchett. A young adult book set in Discworld. This is my first reading venture into Discworld. So far, so good.
This week, I hope to read the following three books.
Palace Pier by Keith Waterhouse, which is set in Brighton, one of my favourite places to visit.
Skylight Confessions by Alice Hoffman, who wrote the fabulous book made into a film, Practical Magic.
Wintersmith by Terry Pratchett.
I doubt if I will get much reading done today, as I have lots of things to do, hopefully I should get a couple of hours this evening.
Have a good Sunday.
